Trying to decide whether to repair my 2004 that was damaged in a barn fire. It depends on prices and distance from Harrisburg 17112 . Thanks

Any interior damage? How many miles? Does it run. No insurance I assume, but if you did, it would probably be totaled out.

That’s very unfortunate. I have all the parts on a 2001 with a Bumblebee battery pack that still has over 4 years warranty and 116k miles. Same color, in very nice shape, CVT. Delivery might be available.

Tongue in cheek, you should probably just look for another car.

You’re probably right! I kinda got attached to it over the years. I’m was thinking if I could find the parts at a decent price it would be a nice project.

@Jay McQ,

I am very sorry to hear about your car.

I also have a red 2004 MT, which I saved from the wrecker after a deer strike. (edit) Etching primer and Rust-Oleum Sunrise Red will get you pretty close in color if you don't want to go all the way with the official red. A clear coat may help, as the Rust-Oleum holds dirt more than the original. It is also ever so slightly orange and shadows are darker in the original. It also must be applied below 50% humidity. But it can help get you back on the road with parts that were not originally red for minimal cost.

Runs and drives fine, 130K, Passenger seat and headliner got damaged, and definitely a total loss, but repairable. Thx
